Robert Baker

I have been a passionate supporter of diversity, equity and inclusion throughout my 40 year consulting career at Mercer. I helped set up the women’s network and led the International DEI practice before I left. Having now set up my own business, I‘m focussing on working with business leaders to help them develop diverse and inclusive workplaces.

The business case for diversity is clear and companies are recognising the benefits of bringing in people with different perspectives, experiences and skill sets to help drive better decision making and foster innovation. However there are many challenges and obstacles for diverse talent in progressing their careers. I am highly driven to help companies and individual leaders recognise and overcome these corporate barriers.

I live in one of the most diverse cities in the world and have much experience of engaging with diverse communities. I am very much looking forward to bringing my experience and skill to the Diversity project to help drive change in the investment and savings industry.
